Description

In one of the most physically and emotionally devastating years in all of American history, Amelia's own world is suddenly coming apart the fighting escalates, putting her dear friend Daniel, a Union soldier, in great danger; her Uncle Edward's store is being boycotted and vandalized by Secessionist sympathizers because he is a known Abolitionist; and Mother's condition deteriorates, forcing her to move to Grandmother's house on the mainland. But before the year is through, Amelia will make a powerful discovery about her own views on slavery as she comes to the difficult realization that certain compromises can't be made, even at the risk of losing her mother's approval. In Karen Hesse's masterful hands, Amelia's coming of age amidst the storms of war and her parents' turbulent marriage, becomes a story of grace, power, and personal redemption.
